Orlando Health has expanded its appointment-free COVID-19 vaccines to the public to two locations. First and second doses of the Pfizer vaccine are available to anyone 12 years of age and older at its easy-to-access drive-through clinic and at the Orlando Health Scripts pharmacy located in the Orlando Health Heart & Vascular Institute. The drive-through clinic is located at 44 Lake Beauty Drive on its downtown Orlando campus. Patients can remain in their cars during the vaccination process. The Orlando Health Heart & Vascular Institute is also located on the downtown campus at 1222 S. Orange Avenue.


“Vaccinations are safe and highly effective at preventing transmission of the virus, including the new Delta variant,” said George Ralls, MD, chief medical officer, Orlando Health. “Vaccinations help reduce transmission of all strains of the virus and reduce the chance of getting seriously ill in the rare event of a breakthrough infection. We urge all who are eligible to get vaccinated as soon as possible and help create a safer community for everyone.”


The drive-through site is offering appointment-free vaccinations 7:00 am – 11:45 am, Monday through Friday, July 19 – August 27 and Orlando Health Scripts at the Orlando Health Heart & Vascular Institute is offering appointment-free vaccinations 9:00 am – 4 pm, Monday – Friday through the fall. Identification is required to obtain a first or second dose of the vaccine. Individuals coming for their second shot should also bring documentation that they have received their first dose. A parent or legal guardian, who is authorized to sign the consent form, must accompany anyone younger than 18 years of age to their appointment.


While appointments are not necessary, pre-registration is encouraged to expedite the appointment. Pre-registration and additional vaccine information can be found at OrlandoHealth.com/CovidVaccine.


In case of inclement weather, the drive-through clinic may need to temporarily suspend operations until conditions are safe. Patients will be asked to wait in their cars until conditions improve.
